of that, our senior economics reporter steve leisman. steve? >> sue, thanks very much. sue, this number is a product of simple math. but whether it's telling us about the real strength of the job market is something investors and the fed are going to have to think long and hard about. take a look at how we got here. first a little bit of the math. the unemployment rate is calculated by essentially taking the number of unemployment and simply dividing it by the labor force. plug in the numbers. 7.8% unemployment rate gives us -- calculates from 12.1 million unemployed divided by the 155.1 million labor force. you can do that at home, if you like. and now here's what happened this month. okay? the number of unemployed dropped by nearly half a million. down by 456,000. the number of employed in this household survey up by 873,000. but wait, because the one thing we're watching here is the number of people who were employed but were part-time but they wanted full time work. we call it for economic reasons. up by 582,000. that's the third september surge in a row. some people suggest there i
is will the headline 7.8% do anything to slow down mitt romney's rise? let's talk. igor volski, and steve moore. good evening, gentlemen. steve moore, it is possible that the economy is doing a little better or did better in september than people think. i don't want to defend the number but the bureau of labor statistics say the economy is not as bad as some people think. >> it was a decent number, no question about it. barack obama got his four-year wish list. he got that 7 in front of the unemployment rate number, which he's wanted for a long time. i'll say what i say in our editorial tomorrow. the labor market still stinks, larry. this is a lousy labor market. we still have 14.6% people who are unemployed when you include the people who can't find a full-time job, when you include all those people who dropped out of the labor force, that's 23 million people. i wanted to emphasize one thing with your conversation with jack welch. jack was right about one thing. there are only 10,000 added in terms of government jobs in the new report but all of the additional -- the revised upward jobs numbers for

a hard look at this. >> you have to say something, i guess. joining me is democrat strategist steve mchahn and republican strategist mark mckinnen. i'm going to start with you, mark, because i was impressed with mr. romney's way of presenting himself. he was like an actor who came on playing a bigger role than he normally guy like a big guy, "master and commander" russell crowe. he grew when he came on stage and he stayed in character as if he wanted to do a couple more hours of it. so prepping him -- and i didn't ven that mitt romney before. that guy has not been out there. what happened with him? how did he get so ready for that thing? >> i think he and the campaign totally understood what the stakes were and they prepared and they prepared a lot. i have watched mitt romney over the years, and he has steadily improved, and, you know, people like stewart stevens and beth myers took a lot of heat over the last couple months about the campaign, but those -- i have worked with stuart before in many campaigns and he's a debate preparation fanatic and they understood that this would be an

at that. >> we have steve schmidt on yesterday. steve schmidt would call me during the 2008 campaign. and it used to drive him crazy, and the mccain campaign crazy, about how arrogant the obama team was. he was, like, they don't respect us at all. he'd go, why -- you know, they don't think we have anything. and that was the attitude that they set forth. and i've just got to believe also there was a huge level of overconfidence going into that romney debate. kind of like the dukakis team had in 1988, that they were the smartest people on the planet, and they looked down on the waters and the great unwashed, and i think maybe he was in shock that mitt romney came out and was effective as he was. >> or maybe they felt and maybe rightfully so, they didn't really need the debate as much as they thought they did. >> maybe they listened to donny. >> but i want to know, mark halperin, what you meant by mitt romney, who he was during the debate versus the mitt romney that the president might have been practicing against of the past few months or past few years. what are the differences? >> he

gains and dividends than if we kept the rates. >> steve, we don't have a lot of time, but in mitt romney, i'm not sure he is explain this very well. when you cut people's taxes, yes, tax revenue would go down if that is all that happened but when you do, people have more of their own money they invest and buy stuff and they become entrepreneurs, they put money back into the economy in multiples. >>guest: that is right. one other quick point and we are running out of time, i know, i looked at data the last 50 years when we have cut tax rates in the 50's and 80's and under the 2003 bush tax cut, guess what happened? the percentage of taxes paid bit rich went up. >> and tax revenue due to higher growth, receipts, went up. >>guest: this is not complicated. >> it was 24 hours ago her turn and in two minutes it will be his. a blue dog democrat and his five against mia love. humans -- sometimes life trips us up. and sometimes, we trip ourselves up, but that's okay. at liberty mutual insurance we can "untrip" you as you go through your life with personalized policies and discounts when you need
in a new direction. steve is like in miami with this story. steve, is this really a legitimate election? >>reporter: it is very tough to tell based on polls inside venezuela. they do have a sophisticated voting system and the number of outside analysts say it will be a fair election. the question is, if one person does hold all the power as chavez does, he controls the media and the courts, he controls billions in oil money, can they have a fair democratic election? it is clear this will be a test for chavez, perhaps the first different in his 14 years of rule inside venezuela. he has had a number of things that have brought him down in the polls: high inflation, the highest murder rates, electric power outages. he is still enjoying strong support from the poor and he subsidizes housings and that gives him support. he has battled cancer the past year, but now he says he is cancer free. this time around he has a young, energetic opponent and he is 40 years old, a firm governor who has crisscrossed the country giving chavez the first fight in 14 years. in southern florida we have seen th
. and now evidently steve forbes, a former presidential candidate tweeting his endorsement of jack welch. then against almost everybody else in this town, a former economist on here, jared bernstein, said jack welch ought to be ashamed of himself. a former republican white house official also endorsed the integrity of the people who put these numbers together at the bureau of labor statistics. so jack welch and a couple of other people on an island on this one. really an inflammatory attack with no evidence to back it up. >> mike viqueira at the white house, thanks so much. >>> for reaction to that i'm joined by susan page, "usa today" and david nakamura, "washington post." good day to both of you. this is fascinating. susan, first of all, how much does this employment number blunt mitt romney's debate momentum? and do you think the white house is going phew, relieved at this? >> if not popping champagne bottles. two-ways in which this number was so useful to the white house yesterday. it got the unemployment rate below 8% which has been kind of a line of demarkation. the romney folks ha
does that do to the republican party's politics on this issue? joining us now, steve carknacky, the co-host of msnbc's the cycle and a senior writer at salon.com. thanks for being here. >> happy to be here. >> there were a ton of these gay marriage bans on the ballot in 2004 and the common wisdom was republicans thought it would drive up turnout and help george w. bush get elected by bringing out conservatives who might not like him but who really hated gay people. did that turn out to be the case in '04? >> there is all sorts of speculation about that. you can certainly match up. it was a year in which turnout went up surprisingly overall and it was sort of a base election where the base of each party was activated. i've never seen a definitive study that said yes we can clearly link the x number of voters in ohio or whatever would have stayed home if not for this being on the ballot. you can find a correlation between people who voted against it in a place like ohio and who voted for george w. bush but on a lot of other issues, too. >> sort of a mixed bag. the common wisdom doesn't m
. steve forbes follows up and says welch is right. does governor romney put any stock in those theories and have any suspicions at all about the bls numbers? >> george, the numbers themselves are very damning. when you look at it, we had fewer jobs created in september than were created in august, fewer jobs created in august than were created in july. our unemployment rate has come down because for -- since president obama took office, for every new job created, more than six workers have left the labor force. if labor force participation was what it was when the president took office, unemployment would be around 10.7%. these jobs that were added in september were largely part-time jobs. so we still have 23 million americans -- that number has not changed at all -- who are either unemployed or out of work entirely or are underemployed working or out of the workforce entirely or underemployed working part time instead of full time or not in a job commensurate with their skills, half of the college students coming out of, you know, with degrees today are unable to find a job. this econo
: i am i democrat. host: we will try to get a republican. steve from tennessee. what do you think, does the drop in the unemployment rate have any effect on the presidential race? caller: first of all, i want to say that it is a false report. it is absolutely impossible for it to be 7.8%. this report has been skewed, just like the polls in obama's favor. i also want to comment on the health care. if the truth about the health care were known as far as the hidden taxes, this law absolutely destroys the american economy once it takes full effect. i also want to make one more comment -- of the people would take a look and investigate the background of peru, and investigate the background of mitt romney, obama has never run anything in his entire life -- if people look at investigate the background of barack obama and investigate the background of mitt romney, obama has never run anything in his entire life. if he is reelected, life in america will no longer be the same. he has succeeded in everything he has tried to do -- believe me, he does not want this country to succeed. host: th

about the house of representatives. we talked with representatives steve israel. we talked about the new jobs numbers and the presidential debate. [video clip] i can't give you the empirical evidence that republicans ending medicare to fund millionaires has helped democrats across the board. governor romney chose paul ryan as his running mate on october 11 -- beef -- on august 11. you look at the congressional bellpull in the country, it was pretty much tied. generics were very tight. after august 11, when governor robin decided to double down on republican plan to end medicare and fund tax cuts for millionaire and big oil companies, the generics began to spread. instead of being in a neutral environment, we were up 1, 2, 3, and when todd aiken express those horrific thoughts about legitimacy to forms of rape, the generics widened even more. when the republican or romping in the sea of galilee, the generics spread even more. these people have breweries that would end of medicare to fund -- these people have priorities that would end medicare. in august, the nbc/ "wall street journal"gene
this is unbelievable. they're messing with the numbers. steve forbes, former gop presidential candidate, berkeley man himself, retweeted it and said, jack is right. and then there was this entire universe. i joked about it. you're out of your mind if you don't think these numbers were cooked. yesterday jack welch went on my colleague "chris matthews show" and this is what transpired. >> you put out the word here, unbelievable jobs numbers, fair enough. these chicago guys will do anything so they change the numbers. what evidence do you have that they got to the bos? the chicago guys got to the bureau of labor statistics and jimmied these numbers by .3%. >> i have no evidence, i just raised the question. >> you came out and asserted not a question mark or talked about a coincidence, you said these chicago guys will do anything so they change the numbers. do you want to take that back? jimmying with these numbers. there was corruption here, infiltration, getting to the -- it's not funny, jack. you're talking about the president of the united states playing with the bureau of labor statistics numbers. t
welch. the numbers were entirely fixed. he's been chimed in this morning by steve forbes, also said these have been fixed numbers. they intended for them to go down precisely under 8% before the election started. this is some crazy stuff going on on the right here. that might generate enough interest to make the debate -- >> i just want to -- just in case anyone has been sleeping under a rock on friday or something. i just wanted to show what jack welch's response was, it was a tweeted response that got picked up in the news where he basically said that the u.s. bureau of labor statistics apparently in conjunction with the chicago machine, right, the chicago guys will do anything. you can't debate, so you change the numbers. that's the idea, that that's what happened here, that these numbers aren't real. >> i was astonished when i first heard that, considering he used to be the head of this whole network and everyone -- >> shhh. >> that's amazing. the other thing is, that these jobs numbers, they destroy their big talking point of the republicans over the last eight, nine months tha
